Welcome to the Fine Arts Department

The arts are alive and well here at Allan Hancock College where we see the department as the epicenter for creative investigation and opportunities from Santa Ynez to Santa Maria. A look at the curriculum reveals that students take a variety of classes to fulfill their General Education requirements, thoroughly preparing you for study in a selected discipline.

It is with great anticipation that we look forward to a new 88,000 square-foot, two-story fine arts complex. It will include visual and performing arts as well as a recital hall. In the planning stages for over twenty years, it promises to be a jewel on the Central Coast.

Because of the current pandemic, communications with our department will primarily through email and phone. On campus visits are on a case by case basis. Please contact the Dean's office for further information.
